One form of Indonesia's rapid technological advancement is the use of smartphones. Moreover, smartphones are currently a very important necessity, even in the field of education, which has a huge impact and benefits on human life. Therefore, teachers play an important role in creating learning media by utilizing smartphone technology to support student learning activities. This training activity aims to prepare teachers to be more creative and innovative in developing teaching materials or learning media that use technology to motivate and facilitate students' learning at any time and from any location.
